STOCKHOLM - 03 MARCH 2020 - From the churches of Rome, the people are called to abide by the one true faith. From the palaces of Vienna, the subjects are commanded to obey their chosen ruler. From the streets of Paris, a new generation of citizens pursues its own zealous mission. All choose their path, all aspire to Empire.

Paradox Development Studio announces Europa Universalis IV: Emperor an expansion for its classic game of early modern exploration and conquest. Emperor revitalizes gameplay for the Holy Roman Empire, the Papal State and other Catholic nations, while also adding greater interactivity in the management of a kingdom’s internal affairs.


Features of Europa Universalis IV: Emperor include:
  • A Powerful Pope: Appoint cardinals, publish Papal Bulls and gather tithes. The Vatican and Papal Controller now have new abilities to sway the souls of Christendom.
  • New Holy Roman Empire Systems: Imperial Incidents provide new challenges to the Emperor's power and authority. Will your empire follow a course to a centralized monarchy or decentralized federation?.
  • Revolutions Revamped: The spirit of Revolution is a contagion that must be either embraced or vigorously opposed. Use the guillotine and revolutionary guard to enforce the new way of thinking.
  • The Hussite Faith: Bohemia has an early game chance to embrace heresy and stand alone against the Pope until The Reformation.
  • Hegemonies: If you accomplish great feats, you should expect great rewards. Seize the mantle of honor for accumulating great wealth and armies.
  • New Missions: Over 20 new unique mission trees for a variety of European nations
  • Defender of Faith: With great responsibility comes great power. Earn more bonuses for defending a major religion than for defending a small one.
  • The Council of Trent and Counter-Reformation: Join other Catholic rulers to slow down the spread of the Reformation by making concessions to the unruly mob or harshly imposing the will of God.
  • Provoke Rebellions: Risk a larger rebellion now while you think you can manage it instead of waiting for discontent to take its course.

Emperor will be accompanied by a major update free for all Europa Universalis IV players, that includes a redrawn map of west and central Europe, Crown Lands, new ideas and a host of other major changes.

If you want to know more of what's coming in Emperor and it's accompanying free update, then check out our development diaries!

And speaking of speculations, with a big-ass name like that and an expansion with much more content than usual, I really feel it's going to be the last expansion of EU4 :-(

Like Holy Fury.
Well this year EUIV is as old as CKII was when HF was released...

Is Hussite religion a thing only with the DLC (like Anglican) or is it in the free patch, but the mechanics are locked away?
in the Free patch but mechanics locked away in Expansion

I'm sure they will be changed, but after I noticed those Imperial Authority and Dominant Faith icons are off center, that's all I can look at haha.
Well it's clearly a work in progress, look at the icons for the reforms.

Will Bohemia be able to force convert nations to Hussite? Will I be able to play as Hussite Japan?
If you turn yourself into a Theocracy through the Government Reform system and then use the new reforms added in Emperor then that would be a very possible playstyle yes.

Pity it takes ages to reform to a different government.

Sikhs already have historical events that give bonuses in certain periods. Totemist and Animist shouldn't be getting any extra flavor. They're "generic pagan-native" religions. You couldn't pinpoint anything particularly animist or totemist that papua new guineans have in common with Sakhalin natives or patagonians with inuits.
It'd be better if the animist and totemist religions were gutted from the game and regions given their own fleshed out religions.

But EU4 is a fantasy history game and all scenarios post 1444 are imaginable and plausible. Hussitism could have turned into a catholic style state church, much like Anglicanism. Or just like you say, it could have eventually ended up fully blending with the Lutheran reformation. Or perhaps it could have ended up fully integrated into Catholicism. None of those scenarios are too crazy to imagine and it's really up to the content designers which options they pick, but since this really is a fantasy history territory, more of them should be available.
All of the above ;)
